Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects center around Harvest & Hope, so prepare yourself for gratitude and love in Fall-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The card I have to share today contains Pumpkins and Gratitude for this Harvest Theme.   Both inspire memories of childhood, family time and fun


Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins, Harvest Meadow, Thanksgiving, Jackie Beers




Paper and Colors

I have been using all of the deeper and brighter Fall colors lately.  So I wanted to go with a softer look today.  The Boldness of the Bumblebee cardstock pairs well with the softer green of Soft Succulent in the piece of Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper I picked .  For an even softer touch, I used Soft Sea Foam for the green of the vines.  To pair with that, the Pumpkins are stamped with Smoky Slate and then colored using Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends.  The piece needed another spot of brightness to match the Bumblebee.  So I colored the flower bloom from the vine with Daffodil Delight and added a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel.


The stamps I used are all from the Pretty Pumpkins set.  Being able to make a card from just one set is something I love!  The gorgeous font from the Gather Together looks beautiful with the shine of the Bumblebee Ink.  I stamped the three pumpkin image twice.  Once on the main piece and another on a scrap of White cardstock.  They are all colored the same, but I fussy cut the end ones from the extra stamped piece.  For a bit of fun I added them to the corners of the focal layer.
